How to Stay Inside Your “Circle of Influence”



Yesss, it's Friday!!!

I have been hearing from a LOT of people about how they are feeling extra stressed and strangely “emotional” over the past few weeks.

For example, little things they would have normally shrugged off seem to be causing more stress and frustration than usual.

Can you relate?

The stress of it all is adding up fast. I wanted to send out a quick email today about simple things you can do to reduce your stress!

In my new ebook, the At Home Survival Kit, I mentioned something from Stephen R. Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People.

When you focus on the things outside of your control (like what’s happening in the world outside your house over the past couple months!), you are in REACTION mode.

Let be real, that's not a fun place to be. It’s like you’re waiting for the next big problem to hit, so you're always on alert.

But when you shift your focus to the things you CAN control (like your daily habits, how you treat others, your immediate surroundings and your actions) – you move into a PROACTIVE mode. (this is called your Circle of Influence.)
